Police are investigating a complaint that alleges student misconduct involving the Proctor High School football team. 

The investigation has prompted Proctor Public Schools to pause all football activities for grades 9-12. Activities Director Anthony Wood issued a statement to Bring Me The News saying "specific allegations and the nature of the complaint are not public data." 

Wood's full statement: 

​"Proctor Public Schools has been made aware of a complaint of student misconduct on the Proctor High School football team. The Proctor Police Department is currently investigating the misconduct with the full cooperation of Proctor Public Schools. At this point, the specific allegations and the nature of the complaint are not public data. Because student data is protected under the Minnesota Data Privacy Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), we can't comment further on the investigation."

Proctor's varsity football team is currently scheduled to host Aitkin on Friday, though the status of that game amid the ongoing investigation is unclear. 

Kent Gaidis, chief of the Proctor Police Department, has asked anyone with information about the alleged misconduct to contact the school resource officer or the police department by calling 218-624-7788. 

"The more witnesses that come forward the faster we can have a resolution for our side and the school," Gaidis said.
